POLAR PUZZLES HD is the latest in a growing string of strategy/puzzle games that are hitting Apple's iDevices in the wake of Angry Birds' success. It's not great, but it's also not bad by any means. The game gives new users a chance to learn the mechanics and offers a wide variety of levels to enjoy (over 75 in the full version -- along with unlockable bonus levels). There are also a few fun twists, like using ice holes to navigate and a seal that helps flip your penguin. But even with those there's a sense of sameness to the game -- and the $2.99 price tag feels a bit high.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
